Every month we  host a Members’ coffee morning. These are informal, fun and interesting, providing our members with the opportunity to get to know the  various Garden departments, staff and volunteers a little better and provide our members with  a “behind the scenes” insight into the daily running of the Garden.

We are also organising coach trips to visit our reciprocal gardens, providing members with an opportunity to see other gardens they may not normally have the opportunity to visit.

All coffee mornings are ‘bookable’ events.   Coffee/Tea and biscuits £1 per head. To reserve a seat/place:  Members are requested to book in advance by calling Jane on  01558 667118 or emailing  jdown@gardenofwales.org.uk
